Lumps Accompanied By Discharge Of Yellow Mucus From The Anus During Pregnancy?
Tonight, I am a woman 15 weeks pregnant, I am 22 years old, 1 month in my anus there are small lumps like pimples, I went to the midwife and said the midwife was hemorrhoids, but now the lump appeared 1 more, and it has been 2 days after defecation thick mucus comes out like yellow snot out of the anus. Guess what I think why? And does that affect my pregnancy?
Hello Alwiyah Bint Hamzar Alhaddar,
Hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids are enlarged veins around the anus. Hemorrhoids arise because someone often straining for example because of hard bowel movements, heavy lifting, sitting too long, or because of venous pressure due to an increasingly large pregnancy. Many pregnant women experience hemorrhoids or have enlarged hemorrhoids that they have suffered before pregnancy.
Symptoms of hemorrhoids are as follows:
Lumps in the anus, they can disappear (arise especially during bowel movements and reenter afterwards) or settle there
BAB accompanied by blood dripping
Itching, burning or discomfort around the anus
Removal of mucus from the anus
Mucus or mucus is normally produced in the lower part of the large intestine to make the stool easier. However, in the condition of hemorrhoids the production can be excessive so that it will be seen by the patient. Expending a lot of mucus from the anus can also be caused by diseases other than hemorrhoids, namely bacterial infections, anal fissures, intestinal obstruction, and Crohn's disease.
The diagnosis of hemorrhoids can be made from anamnesis and physical examination by a doctor, including rectal toucher / rectal action performed with the examiner's finger. Surgery is a definitive action to get rid of hemorrhoids. However, not all hemorrhoids need to be removed immediately, as long as it does not interfere with the patient's activities, does not continuously bleed and complications arise from anemia, and there is no pinching on the hemorrhoids that causes severe pain.
The patient can do the following so that the hemorrhoids do not get worse or prevent the occurrence of hemorrhoids:
Drink enough water
Eat foods high in fiber
Do not hold BAB
Doing exercise regularly
Avoid sitting too long
Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
